They are uniquely formulated with Micellar Water, an innovative ingredient with cleansing compounds that dissolves dirt, oil, soot, and other hydrocarbons. Micelles lift away toxins and contaminants, and draw out impurities from pores while hydrating your skin more effectively than traditional cleansing wipes. They are available in three sizes. The Extra-Large wipe is 12″ x 24″ and individually packaged, the Medium wipe is 8″ x 12″  and also individually packaged,and the Small wipe is 8″ x 8″ and available in a resealable multi-wipe pack.
